Why use finerglass for creating a swimming pool?

The Future: Fiberglass

Fiberglass isn't just about clear backboards and pink corvettes. Today, this tough material can also be found in swimming pools. You can buy fiberglass pools in a variety of shapes and they can also be created in any color.

Another fiberglass advantage deals with the “scrape factor” a fiberglass surface is smooth to the touch (as opposed to concrete which is a bit rough around the edges). Fiberglass is the most expensive of all the pool materials, however, it needs the least maintenance.

*Before buying a fiberglass swimming pool, make sure you check your landscape. Since fiberglass pools shapes are pre-designed you can't change them in mid-installation, like concrete.
